Christmas Tree Elegance

Since 1957, Christmas Tree Elegance, our premier fundraiser has been dedicated to raising funds that provide and promote better mental health in our community. This event kicks off the holiday season the first weekend in December at the San Jose Woman’s Club. The unique highlight of Christmas Tree Elegance is the opportunity to win one of the beautiful, professionally designed Christmas trees each accompanied with a unique “experience”. In addition to beautifully decorated Christmas Trees, each event includes a gourmet meal, features a live performance by the Cosmo Alleycats and a fund-a-need appeal.

Not only will Christmas Tree Elegance get you into the holiday spirit, your ticket purchase affirms our mission to assist three valued mental health agencies Family & Children Services, Centre For Living with Dying and Hearts & Minds Activity Center. Your participation in the event makes a difference in people’s lives.
